I'm Back! (Rattie update w/pics!)

Hey guys, I'm back. Dunno if any of you missed me. I'm sorry I haven't been around these past few months... I got a nasty computer virus and had to format, which lost all of my bookmarks. Lame excuse, I know.

When I left I had just gotten my twin boys, Jack and Louie, do you remember me now?
Well, they're full grown now. Louie is smaller than the smallest girl rat I've ever had. If I hadn't met both of their parents I'd swear they were dwarf rats.
Here's an update picture of Jack and Louie.

That's louie in front and Jack in back.


I've had some pretty hard times too...
Bubbles passed away. He got an inner ear infection, pneumonia, conjunctivitis, and an abscess under his arm the size of a silver dollar... all in a week's time. There was no way he was going to make it, and I found it better to put him down before he could suffer. He was a year and a half old. I miss him so much... I had him put down on July 28, 2008.
Rest in peace, my sweet Bubbles.


I have him buried outside my bedroom window. Have any of you ever read the book "Where the Red Fern Grows"? There's a dead plant next to where I buried him. I'm going to dig it up and plant a Lady Fern, since that's the closest thing to a "red fern" (which doesn't actually exist). Corny, I know... but I like the idea. It's either that or Jasmine, since he loved flowers. I might do both if there's room.

So... It's nice to be back . Hopefully I won't "accidentally forget" to post again for 3 months.

Welcome back! Jack and Luie are such cuties!


I am truly sorry for Bubbles.But at least he won't be suffering and can play with all the other ratties at the bridge.I think your idea is not corny,but sweet!

Thanks everyone ^_^.

Bubbles had the most interesting markings. He had white spots up his back in the shape of angel wings. He also had 2 little yellow spots on his fat little belly in the shape of bubbles. I miss his goofy face looking at me but I'm not sad that he's gone anymore. He wouldn't want me to be sad. He lived a wonderful life, with lots of food and lots of love and I know he thanks me for that.

I mean, how many people can say that their rats live in paradise?


I may be getting another rattie or seven soon. That cage is just too big for 3 rats.
